Grandma’s 90th Birthday
One of the perks of coming to Oklahoma this week was that we happened to be around for Candice’s Grandma’s 90th Birthday party! We drove to Idabel, and the answer to your question is yes, Idabel is every bit as country as it sounds. The party was pretty fun, we picked Grandma up from the nursing home… she’s a very interesting person to be around, since she has this habit of saying whatever it is that pops into her head. We asked her how things were going at the nursing home, and she said matter-of-factly, “Well, you know, people dyin’, and then other people movin’ in.” It’s not that she’s being grim, she’s just telling us what’s been going on.
We took her to her house, put a party hat on her, got the cake out, and fixed some tacos – PAR.TAY! Here’s a good shot of the cake; originally, I wanted to put 90 candles on the cake, but everyone else didn’t think that was a good idea.
Here’s Candice and her Grandma… also featured in this picture is Candice’s new haircut. Some people have said they think the new ‘do’ is smart, sexy, sassy, and stylish… they’re right.
Candice’s dad was there too :)
Happy 90th Birthday Grandma! We think you’re gonna make it to 100 :).
